At Duke Street, all children in Key Stage 2 are taught French for half an hour every week. We beleive that every child should have the opportunity to learn another language, whatever their ability or special educational need. The children are growing up in an increasingly multicultural world, where many opportunities take place in other languages and it is important to learn about other countries, cultures, people and communities. We believe that children enjoy learning to speak in another language, and the earlier a child is exposed to a foreign language, the faster it is acquired. We strive to make learning a foreign language fun and exciting, whilst building the children's self-confidence and communication skills.
